Signs like these are coming soon to a natural area near you. We are always amazed to see evidence of fires in our local natural areas. Fires even in a hibachi or barbecue or on the ground are prohibited at any time in all local natural areas. But especially at this time of year, please, please use common sense and do not light a fire in outdoor spaces. It’s just not worth risking human or animal habitat. And, don’t forget that Hays County is under a burn ban.
